I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me | [Joan Rivers]

I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me

Joan Rivers is a groundbreaking, award-winning, internationally renowned entertainment goddess. She’s also opinionated - especially when it comes to people she hates. Like people who think giving birth is a unique achievement. Or well-adjusted - a.k.a. boring - ex-child stars who don’t even have a decent addiction. With all of her diverse experiences, it stands to reason that Joan has seen, done, said, and heard a lot of hateful things. Thank god, she took notes.

Publisher's Summary

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.”-Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 1850

“How do I hate thee? How much time do you have?”-Joan Rivers, today, about two-ish

Joan Rivers is a groundbreaking, award-winning, internationally renowned entertainment goddess. She’s also opinionated - especially when it comes to people she hates. Like people who think giving birth is a unique achievement. Or well-adjusted - a.k.a. boring - ex-child stars who don’t even have a decent addiction.

With all of her diverse experiences, it stands to reason that Joan has seen, done, said, and heard a lot of hateful things. Thank god, she took notes.

Here - uncensored and totally uninhibited - she give the best of her worst to First Ladies, closet cases, hypocrites, Hollywood, feminists, and overrated historical figures. And even when letting herself have it, Joan doesn’t hold back in this honest, unabashedly hilarious love letter to the hater in all of us.

    "Brilliant"
    Would you consider the audio edition of I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me to be better than the print version?

    Don't know, not having read it


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Why Joan of course


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are no "scenes", but I loved each and every chapter


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh, Joan made me laugh out loud, several times, felt a bit silly, but there was no one to see me


    Any additional comments?

    I just loved this audio book, Joan Rivers is one of the very few comedians I enjoy. I even watch a show about fashion only because she is the star.
    I can't wait for the next book

    "It was so perfect until ..."

    I was ready to write a melting love letter to this book and its author-until I find how much had been left out!
    Can we talk here?
    Where was the part with the funny nicknames for all our 50 states? Where were some of the other hilarious jokes?
    What was there was excellent. I loved it to death. I've loved Joan Rivers since the early '80s when she subbef for Johnny Carson, and appeared on Hollywood Squares. What a hoot.
    solid 4 out of 5, should have been 5 but for the missing material.

    "So disappointing I could cry"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Not funny, just old and tired. I love her shows shes witty and smart and in the now. This book might as well be telling mother in law jokes. Sad and embarrassing. I didn't even finish the book. I was really looking forward to it as well. Wasted my money don't waste yours.

    "HATE BOOK/LOVE JOAN"
    What disappointed you about I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me?

    EVERYTHING


    What could Joan Rivers have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    NOT REALLY FUNNY! HATE THIS HATE THAT IS NOT FUNNY!!!


    How could the performance have been better?

    15MINS OF I HATE MIGHT HAVE BEEN OK, BUT NOT THE WHOLE BOOK, BAD IDEA


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    LAUGH LESS THAN 10 TIMES, I AM A BIG JOAN FAN

    "Boring!"

    Although I enjoy watching Joan Rivers in her comedy acts I did not like this audio. It came across a boring, hence the tile, and totally not funny. I only got about halfway through before I decided to quit listening.

    "Disappointing"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I really like Joan Rivers but couldn't get past the first hour or so in this book. Just sounded like a lot of complaining and things she hates. Some are a little funny but after an hour of "I hate... I hate... I hate..." it gets old. Fast.

    "Some Laughs, Not Many"
    Where does I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Near the bottom.


    Has I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Not necesaryly, just puts more scrutiny on the author's future books.


    Which character – as performed by Joan Rivers – was your favorite?

    Joan being Joan


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    None what so ever.

    "funny!!!"

    I almost didn't buy it because people were saying it's too negative, but come on! Don't take every word seriously and it's actually very funny in classic Joan Rivers style. And hearing it in her own voice is great!

    "LOVE JOAN'S COMEDY, BUT NOT HER AUDIO BOOK"
    What disappointed you about I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me?

    I love her, but listening to the book was so annoying. It sounded more like pissing and moaning than it probably would have if I were reading it myself or seeing her perform it in a stand-up format. Sorry, Joan. I'm a huge fan of your work, just not of this book in this format.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Unsure.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Joan Rivers’s performances?

    A recording of a live performance: definitely.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment and annoyance.

    "A true laugh a minute."

    Just wanted to say this book made me laugh out loud in explosive bursts (sometimes in public which was embarrassing) and I agree with Joan on about 85% of the things she hates. Maybe it's an age thing but she certainly gives it to us straight. Such brutal honesty is not only brave but hilariously funny. Yes she's cruel sometimes but she's also usually right!
    Loved it.

    "Love Joan, Hate this one"

    When you turn a book into audio, repetition gets very boring. I had hoped that with Joan reading her own book, it would be like one of her monologues. However this book has the phrase "I hate..." Repeated constantly, making it incredibly annoying. I could not finish this audio book and will request a return. Fail Joan.

    "Very funny"

    Very funny, She has the ability to laugh at herself and sometimes she can use a very offensive language but she is still very funny
